Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Thanks Monty. It's looking like St Louis is a go for next week. I'll make my final decision by Sunday. It's a long haul but a great track. And hey they were nice to me there. That's where I got the best appearing award in 2019.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

We scaled the truck today. The way I set it in Houston ended up being almost neutral. It was 3lbs heavy on the drivers side. I usually set it 10 to 20 preloaded on the passenger side. I decided to leave it alone and play with shock adjustments instead. Hey it was predictable after the adjustment so I'm going with it.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Also I may or may not be in St Louis Thursday. I may be at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Adel Georgia. I have roll the dice due to weather conditions. I guess we'll see.

It's about 100 miles more to Ga. Not that big of a deal on that. I think I'll make my decision by Tuesday. I wish I was a Weatherman! They get paid whether they are right or wrong. Lol

The scales at Houston read 3575lbs. These chassis scales read 3556lbs. The old chassis scales I used read 3590. The scales in St louis last year read 3550. So I don't know Monty lol. We put less than ten feet of Moly tubing with the braces so it didn't gain but 10-15lbs.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I knew I didn't want to go to St Louis with the weather predictions. They postponed the race and made it a double race at the end of September. I thought that was great until I figured out I can't go because I have to be in Noble Ok for our Division 4 race.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Anyhow I'm loaded up and ready to go to Georgia Thursday. I rigged up something to help save my shocks today. Since I don't run my wheelie bars I made this up to keep movement to a minimum.



South Georgia Motorsports Park Adel, Ga this weekend.

Well.... She doesn't look older than 26 so Happy B-Day to her. That track is about 1.5hrs north of my dads place.

Good luck w/the rounds!

I talk to my dad every Sun night @ 9pm(Tx)/10pm(Ga) time. He'll usually ask what the weather was like here the last few days so he has an idea of what's coming LoL.
We got poured on last night/over-night here in the Dallas area. Not a cloud in the sky @ 9am....

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Thanks Greg. It got ugly last night at 10pm Eastern Time. I had a Tornado Alert go off on my phone. Jamie and i got dressed and rode up to the brick bathrooms (done that before). We were up there with a few people and waited it out for awhile. One guy said (did you hear an Airplane?). I told him you probably heard a Tornado. I had some tough competition second round this morning. I had him on the tree and we were both a little hot. We were back and forth at he stripe and I thought I took it. I ended up giving it back by .002. Damn
